“My Favorite Mistake” Episode #5: Billy Taylor


I'm excited that the fifth episode of my new podcast “My Favorite Mistake” is now released!

You can listen to it and learn more via my MarkGraban.com website:

Episode #5: Billy Taylor on “My Favorite Mistake” in Manufacturing Operations Leadership

My guest is Billy Taylor, who you might have seen on stage at one of the major Lean conferences in recent years. He was a long-time operations executive at Goodyear and he recently retired and started his own consulting company, LinkedXL.

In the episode, Lean practitioners will really appreciate his thoughts on the need to respect standards — to not compromise standards. You'll hear him tell stories from his childhood, early in his career, and later as he rose through the leadership ranks at Goodyear.

I'll post a link to each weekly episode here on my blog. I hope you find it to be interesting and thought provoking!
